I have an SSIS package in sql 2005.  I have a file watcher task that kicks off a for-each loop.  I want these tasks to run repeatedly until there are no more files.  It works for the most part, but I need to check the folder again after it does the for-each to see if any more files came in wile it was running BEFORE it executes the tasks outside of the for-each...follow?

Creating another ForEach loop doesn't resolve your problem?!

copy past the current foreach loop and link the old to the new one.
to count the number of files, use a script task.
I can do it for you, fo you want?

yes, please help me with the task...I want to count the 8.mdb files after it exits the foreach loop...if there are more files it should run the for-each again, if not it should run the last 2 tasks.

Thanks again!

Inside srcipt task I added the follow code to count MDB files:
 
Imports System
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Math
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
 
Public Class ScriptMain
    Public Sub Main()
        Dim i As Integer = CInt(Dts.Variables("uvCountMDBFiles").Value)
        Dts.Variables("uvCountMDBFiles").Value = i + 1
        MsgBox(i)
        Dts.TaskResult = Dts.Results.Success
    End Sub
End Class

Hi Pedro-
I took what you gave me and modified it to work, i only used 1 for loop and counted the .mdb files each time it ran.  Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!
